    The Fresno Commodore User Group has its next meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:00+ p.m., Sunday, February 16, at

    Panera Bread Restaurant

    This month we may have special visitors coming from the Sacramento Amiga Computer Club! Make sure to give them a friendly Fresno greeting!

    For discussion we'll talk about the April 4 City of STEM science show which is in Los Angeles, the April 25-26 Commodore Los Angeles Super Show (CLASS), the Vintage Computer Festival East happening in New Jersey at the same time as CLASS, the June
    Pacific Commodore Expo in Seattle, the tentative Amiga 35th show for the Bay Area, and the Downtown Los Angeles Maker Faire which is expanding to 2 days this year!

    In software we'll look at the only side-scrolling game for the Commodore 128 in
    80-column mode, Cloneimals, the original being released years ago and now the improved 2020 version being released a few days ago! Also we have the winner of the C128 80-
    column coding competition, BucketWars! For the C64/128 we look at 1541 Ultimate II and the 1541 Ultimate II+ cartridges. Also for the C64, we have another look at the FCUG New Members' Disk and the new Shoot'Em Up Construction
    Kit game, Spearhead. In
    classic Amiga business, we look at the Amiga 3000 which has been upgraded to the latest WHDLoad and with more games installed into it, courtesy of Duncan M.
    of The Other Group of Amigoids in San Jose. I'll show how I've been translating the German
    Pagefox manual into English with the use of the A.L.I.C.E. laptop. (As of today, 33% of the 69 pages translated!)

    After the meeting, Bernardo Studios opens, and we'll be filming Roger's CAD presentation for CLASS.
